Abstract:
    As time passes, our postures tend to get worse. Also, people at gyms do exercises at completely wrong angles which causes back pain. Back and neck pain is second most common reason to visit doctors.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Since the early ages of mankind the habit of slouching has always been difficult to nullify. Moreover, during workouts most of the people are ignorant about the right stance of exercising with weights.Thus, our idea presents a wearable that will give a confident look by correcting their postures.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
    Market ranges from Amateurs at the gym and people ranging 20 above because that is when an average human's height becomes stagnant. Moreover, it can be used in office since that is the time when men and women are more likely to slouch.
How will the solution works
    The proposed system is to design a sensor studded vest to let the user know precisely when they are deviating from the neutral spine condition (proper posture). The posture will be monitored in real time as 3-D model interfaced in a mobile using a mobile application. The user will be notified via vibration in the specific region causing improper posture. We aim to extend our project to various gym exercises (shoulder press,bench press,dead lift) to notify people on wrong posture during workout.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Lumo and upright go are the posture-correcting devices available in market. But they are only effective for one typical part of the back, whereas our solution targets 8 different parts of the back.
